Temperature-checking tech for feet

Researchers at the Auckland Bioengineering Institute have received funding for a pilot study to trial their portable temperature-sensing technology to detect the early signs of foot complications among people with Type 2 diabetes. FootSense is a low-cost device designed for home-based temperature monitoring. Research shows that differences in temperature between a person’s feet indicate compromises in blood flow, which can lead to foot ulcers and, in severe cases, amputation.
